Slacker, thy name is me

I haven't posted in days because...well...I haven't posted in days. It's not that I don't have anything to blog about, I'm just a bit computered out, I think. I haven't really been commenting much or replying to comments or even posting as much on my chatty boards as I usually do.

I think it's just that I have been so busy at work with computer stuff that when I get home I can't bear to do any more typing. But hopefully the biggest crunch is over, and I won't have to spend so much time glued to my desk in the immediate future.

I started this blog in June of 2004. I can't believe it's been that long ago. I started it for two reasons, one of which was to get past my writer's block. I thought the accountability of having everyone see what I wasn't writing would help me write. That's been a mixed bag, I think. I've gotten lazier about blogging, and lazier about what I blog. But I'm not altogether unhappy with the process, or the result, and I've cyber-met some interesting people along the way.

The second reason I started this blog was to journal my attempt at a healthier lifestyle; specifically, changing my eating habits and dropping some weight. That never happened. I realized when I started blogging that I really didn't want to talk about it. Heck, who am I kidding...I really didn't want to do it.

So, here I am nearly three years later, and I'm ready to get serious. No more snacking after 9:00 pm. No more carb binging. More veggies. Less junk. Walk more. I haven't been perfect (The Boy got it into his head earlier this week that we would eat lunch at Sonic today, and there was no dissuading him, and what's a lime slush among family?) but I have been good, and this morning my weight was in a place it hasn't been in far too long. Still a long way from the place it needs to be, but closer. On the fringes of the edges of the suburb of the city where it should be.

And that's something, right?
